Photographer's Note

ARTZUID II

Three new artworks from the ARTZUID Biennial 2021 in Amsterdam.

■ Picture 1: ◄ Love and Generosity ► https://i1.trekearth.com/photos/15099/te915-1.jpg
The first photo shows an image that will have a permanent place at the current location in front of the building of the Amsterdam Courthouse.
The American artist Nicole Eisenman made the artwork 'Love or Generosity' for the new court
The artwork depicts a gatekeeper of the court: not a guard but a gentle person who offers relaxation and comfort. The statue is more than five meters high, which makes it a good fit for the new courthouse that has ten floors. Despite the height of the statue, the friendly attitude of the 'gatekeeper' ensures that the image does not deter but rather attracts and makes you curious.

■ Picture 2: ◄ SIGNS ► https://i1.trekearth.com/photos/15099/te915-2.jpg
In the second photo you will not recognize a work of art at first glance, but the yellow sign is part of an extensive work of art by Johanneke Meester.
Since 2011, Joanneke Meester has been producing yellow traffic signs. They feature inspirational and relativistic texts, which can be interpreted in a number of ways in relation to the local residents, visitors, neighbourhood, the temporary (art) manifestation or a special theme. The Signs originally used to redirect traffic are given a whole new significance and, in combination with the context, various layers of meaning. They give direction in their own way, based on thought processes, imagination and reflection. (website joannekemeester.com)
The man in the picture seems as if indeed his rhythm has disrupted : RHYTHM DISRUPTED
Other road signs of Joanneke are: HELP HELPS - WHAT IS THE SHORTEST WAY TO WISDOM? - BEING DIFFERENT CAN BE FUN TOO - IT CAN ALWAYS BE CRAZIER - GET USED TO IT - YOU CAN ALWAYS ASK - CLOSE TO CONFUSION - DIRECTION EMPHATY - HURRYING DOES NOT HELP - THE BEST IS YET TO COME

■ Picture 3: ◄ The interpretation and identification of the meaning of life ►

In the photo we see the installation The interpretation and identification of the meaning of life by Tirzo Martha (Cura蓷o, 1965).
I chose the photo because it shows so beautifully how you can introduce children from a very young age and let them enjoy the fantasy of art.
